How to change the keyboard language on MacOS

  1. Click on the Apple Menu: Start by clicking the Apple icon located in the top-left corner of your screen.


  1. Open System Preferences: In the drop-down menu, select "System Preferences."


  1. Go to Keyboard Settings: Within System Preferences, find and click on the "Keyboard" icon.


  1. Access Input Sources: In the Keyboard window, click on the "Input Sources" tab. This is where you can manage different keyboard languages.


  1. Add a New Keyboard Language: Click on the "+" button, which is located at the bottom left of the Input Sources section. This will open a list of available languages.


  1. Select Your Desired Language: Scroll through the list and find the language you want to use. Click on it to select it. You may also see different keyboard layout options for some languages – choose the one you prefer.


  1. Add the Language: After selecting your language and layout, click the "Add" button, which is located in the bottom right of the window.
